Lalor offers a range of well-known education providers within minutes of Mosaic Townhouses. Living in an area where there is ample access to well-connected providers is what matters when choosing a school and the convenience of not having to travel far for the morning drop off.

Choosing a school is an important decision, not only is it about the school’s scholastic achievements but also the social connections and friendships that you and your child will form. The opportunities schools offer for future pathways into tertiary education, especially at a senior level is high on the checklist for parents.

Lalor offers a thriving community supported by an abundance of education providers to choose from.

When choosing the right school, you may want to consider:

Culture and Values

Is the school public or private  and what year levels does it cater for? Researching what the school’s values are can be important. This helps to gain an understanding of whether their education teachings are religious, or philosophy driven.


Location matters when it comes to the school run but so too does suitability and fit to those attending. You might want to consider who else in the community is attending this school, from friends to family members. They will be able to shed some light on their own children’s experiences. Don’t forget to explore the extracurricular activities on offer such as before and after school programs.

Community Connections

Find out if the school has a good reputation within the community. Ask them if they provide a platform for parents and families to get involved in the school’s activities to support the community.

School Facilities

Consider the size of the school and how many students they enrol annually. Take a tour of the school and look at the amenities on offer from sporting fields to swim and music centres. Get a feel for their focus, are they predominantly academic results focussed or do they have a strong sporting curriculum.
